We chose to stay within the city walls this time around and it was a good decision. The hotel is located close enough to the main piazza to not miss anything but far enough to be a quiet environment. Numerous restaurants and shops just a stroll away to enjoy and explore. The rooms are spacious and beautifully furnished. The staff... More

This is truly a perfect position for staying in Cortona. We had a lovely welcome and a very helpful porter. Our room was classic Tuscan style. Breakfast was good and could be eaten in the courtyard if desired. Our check out (young man, more interested in his phone- couldn't even bring himself to respond to my 'arrividerci) wasn't as friendly... More

Hotel in the center of the old city. It is possible to walk to the old town of Cortona from the hotel, very convenient position. The staff is very nice and ready to help with any need. Great place to visit Cortona

We did not stay here but ended up being stranded in Cortona without a bus or taxi in sight. The excellent concierge who spoke superb English found us a taxi when most were booked up due to a wedding, and very comfortably rested in lounge until taxi arrived - very grateful ++

We arrived into Cortona on a warm but very wet thunderstorm late afternoon. From the onset, Cortona inspired us and took our breath away. oh beautiful beautiful Cortona. San Michele was like an oasis in unfamiliar surroundings. We were welcomed in such courteous and hospitable way. We were shown all the rooms available so we could choose. We of course... More

Returning to Cortona is always a joy. San Michel has a staff of incredible people who are helpful and kind. The rooms are beautifully appointed and so comfortable. The breakfast is beyond sumptuous and a true value. I wouldn't consider any other hotel in Firenze!

Booked this Hotel via Voyage Prive for a 7 day stay.... Whilst the hotel is listed as 4 star, we would put it at 3 star. Cotona like many Tuscan towns is a medieval town built high on top of a hill! The Major problem here, particularly for older or unfit people is the walk up a Hugely steep incline... More
